A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.


Zablon's Group's story

Zablon is 70 years old and has two children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Zablon is the only one featured in the above picture he is actually representing his group formed by 13 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Zablon started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, he has seen his life improve; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

Zablon’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 11 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
